I do think that sleep cycle or at least the part of the brain that controls sleep cycle plays a part.
I've noticed that during different cycles the attact seems to come during times when I start to relax. It may be at the end of a day of work. Of course during some part of the cluster, attacks come right after falling asleep. I've also noticed that sometimes, if I have a large lunch, I might have an attack after that.
We know that the body slows down after eating inorder to aid digestion. That slowing down seems to bring on the attack.
The strange thing about all this is that as I wonder through each cycle, things change. In other words, the place I'm in during the cluster seems to affect when and how severe the attacks are.
By the way when I'm in the part of the cycle when I have attacks after going to sleep at night I don't eat dinner/supper. I don't know if that helps but at least my tummy is empty if I do have a bad attack. I also lose some weight, which never hurts in my case.
What do ya think?
Oh by the way, I'm a morning person. I'm often up at 4 AM. I do my best work at that time.
